As the GD moved towards jazz in the WOS era, his role would have certainly diminished, especially for the second set stuff. Overall, I hope he would have had more time to make those new songs in '71/'72 work for him... but the takes we have aren't particularly thrilling for these ears.

That considered, I would still have enjoyed seeing him on his own, backed by a wailing blues band, singing his favorite R&B and Blues tunes in small clubs. Now that would have been something!
